Cannabis Business Loans

Most traditional lenders do not offer financing services to cannabis businesses, making it difficult for entrepreneurs to gain the funding needed to purchase farm land, build a dispensary, acquire equipment, and more. AVANA Capital, in partnership with Safe Harbor Financial, provides “cannabusinesses” with legitimate and legal financing opportunities to support growth in this rapidly expanding industry.

AVANA Capital offers commercial real estate (CRE) loans, construction loans, and bridge loans to cannabis-related business (CRB) clients. Cannabis real estate loans can be used to purchase land or property to establish a farm and dispensary, while bridge loans can serve to fill a financing gap that might be hindering business owners from buying new equipment and expanding operations. 

Our lending experts are here to support you in every stage of your cannabis business’ growth and to give financing advice for all levels of the cannabis supply chain. Whether you are a cannabis cultivator, manufacturer, distributor, or retailer, you can count on AVANA Capital to help smooth the path toward success by equipping you with funds to acquire the land, space, and equipment you need.
